WASHINGTON, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Buoyed by the troubled rollout of President Barack Obama's healthcare law, conservative groups are pouring millions of dollars into advertising campaigns that portray Obamacare as a disaster and target several Democratic senators who have supported the law.
The advertising push - further boosted this week by reports that the Affordable Care Act could force millions of Americans to change policies, counter to promises by Obama's administration - represent a continuation of conservatives' efforts to weaken support for the law.
Turning back Obamacare is a top priority for many conservatives, and was at the root of a legislative standoff this month that led to a partial shutdown of the U.S. government and a near-default on the government's debt.
It's all about Obama. Hate Obama? Hate his dog.
We saw the same vitriol poured out against Bill Clinton. The right wing DETESTED Clinton who was clearly one of our better Presidents.
I have a vague hope that the angry old white guys are going to burn themselves out. Give them eight years of Hillary Clinton and perhaps they will all die of apoplexy.
